Here in America it’s Labor Day. Typically, we endeavor to not labor at all on this fine day, unless you count bending one’s elbow to drink beer or manning a grill. Which I do not. Count, I mean.

 

Anyhoo – this particular holiday has been around since the late 1800s and I’m not sure I’ve ever once thought of the labor movement on this holiday. A lot of American holidays are like that – we forget their primary focus and the very reasons they exist. Maybe that’s not only American. Maybe that happens everywhere.

 

But back to that barbecue action. I can focus on that, yes-sir-ee. I can even focus on it while bending my elbow. I believe that’s what they call multi-tasking.

 

Happy holiday to you and yours!
